Rolls-Royce brings Ghost Series II, Wraith to 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 28, 2015

At the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will be bringing the Ghost Series II and Wraith. This year, a Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II will be the Course Car. This car, which will be hard to miss because of its LED race lights, has a Diamond Black finish. It features a black interior and a contrasting Hotspur Red leather and Black Stained Ash veneer.

It was at the manufacturing plant that the roof‑mounted race lights were designed and handcrafted in aluminium. No one else but David Monks, the Chief Tester at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will be driving the Course Car. It’s expected to be seen throughout the weekend on the course between every Hillclimb Run. Meanwhile, the Wraith (which is featured in Gran Turismo) will be visible on the Supercar Run up the hill and in between Hillclimbs in the Supercar Paddock.

This car is getting an Ensign Red finish with contrast silver. Its interior will have Black, Seashell and contrasting Hotspur Red leather as well as a machined metal facia.

As the coach doors are opened, we will see Canadel Panelling in Tudor Oak, which gets its name from the renowned Canadel cove in the South of France where Sir Henry Royce and his design and engineering teams went during winter time. The driver for the Rrr2Wraith will be Joerg Weidinger, a champion mountain and hillclimb driver and Test Engineer for BMW Motorsport.

These two cars were made just for the event. They come with exclusive Bespoke treadplates that state: ‘Hand built in Goodwood, England for the Festival of Speed 2015’. A purple Rolls-Royce was made in support of Together for Short Lives, the UK children’s palliative care charity. The company aims to help the organization improve awareness of what it does as well as raise money to continue to do its activities.

For a year, the company will allow the group to use a Rolls-Royce Ghost Series II wrapped in the charity’s bright purple colour scheme and Together for Short Livesbranding.

The charity will be able to use the Ghost Series II as it kicks off its ‘Ready to Roll’ tour in October with a trip to all the four corners of Britain. This car may be seen up the hill during the Supercar Run as well as in between Hillclimbs in the Supercar Paddock, with a backup team for the promotion of the charity’s purpose.
